About:

Redemption 87 was a short–lived East Bay hardcore punk band containing ex–members of Unit Pride, Skankin' Pickle, and Token Entry, and contained future members of AFI and the Nerve Agents.

Their goal was to reclaim "hardcore" from the crossover heavy metal music it had become and return it to its punk roots. They were heavily influenced by New York hardcore bands including Youth of Today, Sick of It All, Warzone, Gorilla Biscuits, and others.

The first EP they released was in 1995 and called The Spidey Sessions and contained 4 songs. Some of this songs where included in their 13–song first album in 1997, self–titled. Then they released their last album named All Guns Poolside in 1999, which contained 13 songs, 3 of which are covers from Cro–mags, Negative Approach and Bad Brains.

In this same year the band dissolved and Jade Puget joined AFI, while Eric Ozenne and Timmy Stardust formed The Nerve Agents.
